They must be feeling good about their deposit numbers right now. I really thought my request was reasonable given my competing offers.

I was also denied, but I'm not surprised. NU was my best t13 offer. Was hoping they would give me 5k more to make my decision easier. Now I have to decide!


Did they shoot you guys an email? Sorry y'all didn't get the news you were hoping for!

Email, yeah. Fwiw, my initial offer is as good as I could have hoped for. Never hurts to ask for more money though.

In my post- scholarship reconsideration sadness, I made this chart to consolidate NU's employment statistics in a (hopefully) readable manner and remind myself that NU is probably worth a good deal of debt.

Just got my reconsideration decision, got bumped up by $10k/year. Not sure if this is enough for me to attend unfortunately :(

Yeah, mine was denied this afternoon as well. I thought that I had a pretty good request considering Michigan offered me more money in a lower cost of living area.

I absolutely fell in love with Northwestern on day 1 and had all of my questions answered and then some....so I decided to see if I'd actually like Chicago instead of sitting through two more days of the same.
Answer: yes. And I might've found a place to live too.
I came home with a new life already imagined and so much excitement!
And then Penn threw a wrench and put me on the WL now everyone and their mother wants to tell me what if what if what if. Like I care about Penn. *spits on ground*

I have yet to submit my deposit because my folks want to talk about what might happen if I get in off a WL. (Don't care still going to NW) But I will. By Friday.

See you all in August!

Sounds like you did better than most of us lol

For posterity's sake, telling them you'll definitely commit for x amount did not work at all for me

I know there were some talks about the Store and getting the NU gear

came across this:

https://www.petermillar.com/


Search "Northwestern" pretty cool stuff


EDIT:

I also like representing the school's sports teams, so while this does not say Pritzker School of Law, I would wear some football gear

http://shop.nusports.com/products.aspx?cat=120

When I was at ASW I went to the store and they had a slightly larger selection of stuff, not massive, but slightly more than the website shows.

Am I the only one having trouble opening the candidate response form? I've tried a couple browsers and I can only open the Early Decision one.

(Also, we have to withdraw from school's we've been accepted by if we pay the seat deposit, right?)

Has anyone successfully requested an extension for the deposit deadline? I just emailed asking for one and am wondering my chances they'll grant it.

If you are ED yes, but otherwise, no. Might want to call them to make sure though.

Other than the scholarship acceptance form and paying the deposit, do we need to do anything else before tomorrow?
